Mother's Day Prose Poem
Spending time with mom. Oh, what a sweet treat.
Mothers everywhere fall in line for a celebration.
Of things nice and sweet and rich in family.
Mom means more maturity for everyone, especially for her.
She is Ms. Mom, and you better respect her
Because she is delicate like a soft mattress.
Mom laughs loudly letting loose in light's laughter.
She sings, shines so stellar and out of sight.
Mom listens to everyone and spends time with children like a dog would.
Because she would do anything, even break barriers for her children.
So, let's celebrate this holiday like good old-fashioned Americans would.
Mom loves us all, so give her a chance.
Remember, we only have one mom. That's it.
As soon as she's gone, the we are on our own.

History of Mother's Day.
According to This Article by Olivia B. Waxman, Mother's Day was created by Woodrow Wilson when he signed a proclamation legalizing the holiday on May 9, 1914 by saying that "an expression of our mother's undying love for us should be reciprocated by us to her," and Anna Jarvis when she sent "500 white carnations" to Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church church 6 years earlier, which was on May 10, 1908, the (un)official first mother's day in the US.
Woodrow Wilson's mother was already dead when it happened. Anna Jarvis's mother was reciting a prayer 38 years before Woodrow Wilson signed that holiday into effect. That prayer said "I hope someone finds a way to commemorate all mothers, and that every mother feels special." 29 years later, when her mother died, she vowed to honor those words.
This is only just a brief history into how the holiday was created. Woodrow Wilson was the father of Mother's Day, while Anna Jarvis was the mother of Mother's Day. If you want to view the full history, I suggest you go to the website.
